responding to the elizabeth warren/scot brown debate that happened in boston. that was a barn burner. but before that, i have to tell you we had a remarkable late in the game development in the presidential race today. it is october 1st. but what happened today is roughly the opposite of an october surprise, i guess? today the republican party announced that in five of the nine or so swing states in the presidential race this year, in the five states that you see marked with an x on this map, the republican party is stopping its voter registration efforts. the republican party has suddenly and totally as of october 1st given up on trying to register new voters in nevada, colorado, virginia, north carolina, and florida. each of those states is very much in play this year. and the republican party has announced that in these five key swing states, they are going to stop registering new voters. here are the voter registration deadlines for those states. typically what this would mean is between now and the last minute of the last hour on the last date that you see on the screen for each

, and i think scott brown and linda mcmahon and a lot of candidates out there are really going to be in trouble if the national republicans now go back on their word and come in and here try to fund todd akin. >> susan, do you agree with that? >> i agree that the democrats would really love to attach todd aakin to some of these critical swing state elections like brown in massachusetts. that's a real close race with democrat elizabeth warren, who definitely has her own problems with some of the things she's said and in connecticut as well. typically blue states where republicans have a real shot at winning. i think the problem for claire is in her own state is a state trending conservative. it's a state where people are unhappy with some of the major initiatives that claire mchas kill supported while p in congress. despite the gaffes she's running hard to hang onto her seat. this is not a done deal as i think her camp would be after he made those controversial statements last month. i think claire mccaskill, the fact she's talking about it shows she knows it's a competitive rac
moves forward. the impact could be just as significant as the well mound brown vs. board of education, a landmark supreme court case in which the court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white student was unconstitutional. some seemed to think that one of the candidates, and i won't name which one, stands for turning back clock in many ways. essentially, minority voter participation will play an integral role in picking the winner of this year's presidential election. the town hall meeting tonight will strategically discussed the who and why minority voter participation and awareness can bring to the racial and ethnic minorities. the moderator for tonight's meeting is none other than roland martin you have seen him on cnn and you have heard him on the radio. he is a national award winning journalist and an author, a commentator where he has " washington watch." and he is a cnn analysis -- cnn analyst appearing on many shows. without further ado, i get your moderator, mr. roland martin. [applause] >> thank you very much. i'm certainly glad to be here
